Zinc Ore falls under the mineable metals category of Spiritfarer. You can mine this material from nodes found on a number of islands, and are then turned into zinc ingots through the Foundry.

How To Get Zinc Ore (All Nodes)

Here are all of the exact node locations where zinc ores can be found:

Southpoint Docks

To reach this location just sail towards Southpoint Docks at X: 157, Y: 22, on the World Map’s eastern region. Do note that this island requires the Rock Destroyer Boat Improvement.

Zinc Ore #1

Step 1: From the island’s starting point, bounce on the first dumpster bin you see to reach the scaffolding up top.

Flotsam Shores

The next island is Flotsam Shores, at X: 109, Y: -107. This island is located just south of Southpoint Docks, which means that it also requires the Rock Destroyer Boat Improvement.

Zinc Ore #1

Step 1: From the starting point, head right until you find a shipping container with a door. Head inside.

Hidden Thicket

The last island is Hidden Thicket, at X: -42, Y: -91. To reach this island, you need to have the Mist Cleaner 1000 Boat Improvement from Albert’s Shipyard.

Once you have the upgrade, head towards the island, located on the World Map’s south-eastern section, and near the bottom of the Everdoor gate.

After arriving on the island, walk right and jump into the water until you reach the next islet where the last zinc node is.

Growing Zinc Ore

Other than getting zinc ore from nodes, you also have the option of growing them once you unlock any of the three Turtle Sisters. Just plant a zinc ore on any of the spots on their backs and mine once they’re fully grown.

Here are the locations of all three Turtle Sisters:

  • Olga (X: 81, Y: 28)
  • Masha (X: -91, Y: 138)
  • Irina (X: 127, Y: -76)

How To Make Zinc Ingots

Zinc Ore & Ingots (Spiritfarer) - Guide Strats (19)

In order to smelt your own zinc ingots, you will need the Foundry. This building requires the following materials:

  • 10 Coals
  • 10 Oak Planks

Once the Foundry is built, here are the steps you need to follow to get your ingots:

Step 1: Head inside and interact with the furnace in the middle to place some coal. You can put as much coal as you wish.

Step 2: Head to the left side and interact with the compartment to place some of the zinc ore from your inventory. You can input up to 50 if you prefer.

Step 3: Once the items have been confirmed, the minigame will begin. Interact with the bellows on each side in an alternating manner to push the needle up to the required temperature.

To avoid overheating the furnace, make sure that the indicator never goes over the indicated temperature.

Step 4: Once the thermometer fills up, the ingots will fall on the basket at the right, and you can collect them there.
